Solid System Cabinets
Solid System is our most economical line of vertical frame and sloped front consoles. The product features a "solid", non-removable side panel. This "Solid Side" offers a cost saving and increases the strength of the cabinet. In all other respects, these cabinets are identical to the Challenger line so all the Challenger accessories are available without modification. When a low cost cabinet is required, consider Solid Side.

Equipto Electronics Corporation is a leading manufacturer of packaging products for the electronics industry. We design and manufacture a wide variety of standard equipment enclosures, from full-size cabinets to sub-racks, at our facility in Aurora, Illinois. Special customer needs are fulfilled by modifications to standard designs or by custom enclosures. As a diverse metal fabricator we have standard product lines, each consisting of multiple variations and accessories, based on the EIA RS-310 standard (often referred to as the 19 inch standard). Many of these products are covered by the company’s numerous patents.

Since the company's founding in 1960, our electronic packaging products have been modular in design. This modularity extends well beyond the EIA RS-310 ( 19" ) standard for maximum user flexibility. For example, equipment can be moved from a vertical rack to a sloped front console, work station or instrument cabinet without modification. By adding shelves, drawers, turrets, casters, lift bolts, standard or special panels, outlet strips, fans, blowers, an almost endless list of accessories and other options, our customers can usually create the perfect electronic enclosure out of a catalog of standard products. This saves time and money over a custom packaging solution. Many projects can be manufactured and shipped by Equipto Electronics in just five working days.

In addition, our experienced engineering staff works directly with customers to specify and design enclosures for special situations. Because of the flexibility of our components and our wide variety of standard products, requirements that may seem very special can often be met with relatively minor modification of standard products providing meaningful savings.

While the Equipto Electronics design staff can find solutions to virtually any metal packaging need for electronics, the company has developed special expertise in EMI-RFI shielding and in the robust construction necessary for enclosures to survive major seismic-events. These capabilities make Equipto Electronics a preferred supplier for military, civil government, power utility and other critical electronic applications. The same operational characteristics are also in demand in such fields as scientific research, medicine, oil exploration and transportation systems.
